The Opel Astra J GTC is equipped with petrol which produce by 71 percent more horsepower over the the engine of the Volkswagen Nuevo Vento, giving the vehicle a much more sporty character. It should be googd option to those who would like to feel thrill of getting behind the wheel of a sports car.
Thanks to 50 percent higher torque, the engine of the Opel Astra J does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Volkswagen. This, in turn, have relevant effects on a car's acceleration.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
A small difference at the level of 25 % indicates that the Volkswagen is insignificantly beaten in this confrontation. In the „compact” segment, to which the Volkswagen is assigned, the average acceleration is 11.3 s and is by 0.3 s slower than acceleration of Volkswagen’s vehicle.
The maximum velocity possible to be reached by the Opel Astra J is greater compared with this of the Volkswagen Nuevo Vento 1.6 TSI 105HP manual by 35 kilometers per hour, which allows the Opel Astra J GTC to overcome faster long stretches of highway. The difference at the level of 35 kilometers per hour is little and will be insignificant in everyday driving.
Maximal torque RPM
The rotational speed at which the highest torque is reached indicates how fast an engine achieves its best performance with increase in rotational speed. The lower revolutions or the longer range at which the torque is the greatest, the more the engine is flexible and a sensation of acceleration should be felt earlier.
Width of a vehicle directly affects interior space for travelers as well as stability while driving. The width of the Opel is larger by 148 mm than the Volkswagen Nuevo Vento and is not really relevant. The average for the „small family cars” class is approximately 1,703 mm and is by 142 millimeters larger than the width of the Opel.
The Opel Astra J GTC 1.6 Turbo ECOTEC 180HP manual has 6 percent longer wheelbase than Volkswagen Nuevo Vento. Therefore the Opel Astra J is safer and has a better stability. Besides, longer wheelbase influences on convenient and more comfortable traveling.
Number of gears
The Opel Astra J GTC have a higher speed count compared with the Volkswagen Nuevo Vento 1.6 TSI 105HP manual which means
that Opel will achieve
faster speeding up and lesser fuel consumption. But the difference is not big and if you are not drag
racing at a timed event you would not
observe the difference.
The Opel Astra J GTC has by 1 cubic centimeter larger engine size in relation to the Volkswagen Nuevo Vento. This may have a little impact on vehicle's performance, as both figures does not differ much.
The Opel is 88 mm longer in comparison to the Volkswagen Nuevo Vento. The length of the vehicle is significant when it comes to travelling comfort and room in the trunk. The Opel very likely will be offering to it's users more space for legs. Aditionally the Opel Astra J GTC will be better driven but the Volkswagen Nuevo Vento 1.6 TSI 105HP manual will be a little easier to park due to shorter length of the body.
The higher a car is, the the more convenient is a getting in to it and greater capacity of carrying big amount of thinks to it. The difference between these two cars at the level of 18 mm to the advantage of the Opel Astra J GTC is small and does not matter much.
